The Legend has it all from the best staff to wonderful good size rooms to views of the Mae Kong river to an excellent pool. Food was good especially the breakfast buffet and the evening BBQ buffet. Plenty of sights to take in and easy to get to with the help of The Legend staff. Want to take a boat...

The setting of the resort on the banks of the Mae Kok river is beautiful and the setting is extremely peaceful. The entrance is very impressive - even if the car park through which one enters is far from being so - and the reception staff pleasant. The welcome drink and towels are welcome, but no more than one would...

This resort was beautiful, but lacked good maintenence and properly trained staff. The rooms were slightly dirty and the grounds lacked the necessary maintanence to make this an excellent resort. The staff were the worst we experienced in Thailand. They went out of their way to avoid helping in any and all situations. The food at the restaurant was atrocious....

The Legend is a beautiful resort in amazing gardens situated on the Kok River. Pros. The pool villas are very spacious and the bathroom is truly amazing. The shower was fantastic and the spa bath so relaxing. The outdoor private garden and pool are just divine with beautiful flowers and a serene tropical feel. There is a good selection for...

We stayed here for only one night on our way further north. We got a very good deal with the off season rate. I would have loved to stay longer. The Legend is removed from the busy part of town a bit but they have a shuttle to downtown and to the night market and finding a tuktuk back was...

In the survival kit this resort came as highly recommended. Maybe that is why we were slightly disappointed. The location is perfect: quiet at the river, yet close enough to town. The pool is great: clean and large. The pool bar was a laugh and hardly ever open We had a pool villa. Large enough, but smaller than anticipated. Cleanish,...
